This is Hand 12 from Segment 5 of the USBF Finals. After the auction, the director was called by North (Levin). who explained that 1D had not been alerted, and there was some sort of comment about maybe he would have doubled if he had known it was artificial.

The BBO commentators were all over this, pointing out how these pairs have been playing each other for years, so of course Bobby knew what 1D meant, and how this action was getting a double shot at a diamond lead, etc.

Does anyone have some light to shed on this situation?
